Sean O'Driscoll the key factor for Bristol City new-boy Brendan Moloney
New Bristol City signing Brendan Moloney says the opportunity to once again work with Sean O'Driscoll was too good to turn down.
Recruited on a free transfer from Championship rivals Nottingham Forest yesterday, the 24-year-old Irishman played under O'Driscoll at the City Ground earlier this season.
And he jumped at the chance to renew his working relationship with the 55-year-old Midlander, who was recently appointed head coach at Ashton Gate.
Moloney said: "I was at Nottingham Forest with Sean. When I heard there was an opportunity to come down I wanted to get the deal done as soon as possible.

"It was an easy decision to make the move if I'm honest, everyone knows Bristol City are a great club.
"I was at Forest since I was 16 so I made a lot of good friends there, but I felt for my career it was right that I moved on. I made quite a few appearances but as a player you always want to play more."
Maloney is well aware of City's current league position but believes there are still enough games left in the season to avoid relegation.
He added: "Obviously no one wants to be in the bottom three at this stage of the season, but there are so many points to play for.
"There is still time for us to get out of it. We have to take each game as it comes and try to pick up as many points as possible.
"I'm fit and raring to go if called upon. I had my first training session today and they seem like a great bunch of lads so it shouldn't be too hard to settle in."
